In this delightful book, Doris reveals everything: from how she got her start in the world of Broadway to the choices she made that built a career and plunged her into a tough but satisfying life.

"Doris Roberts knows how to tell a life story and she does that here. Don't miss this book."(Liz Smith)
In "Are You Hungry, Dear?, Doris takes her signature line from the show and makes it her own in a program that pairs hilarious stories and dramatic turning points from her fascinating life with delicious recipes from her kitchen. She shares the lessons learned in two marriages and numerous love affairs, her struggles with her own family, and her heroic efforts to build a career and raise a son on her own. Those who love feisty, judgmental, opinionated Marie Barone will see how Doris is all that and more: tough, sweet, brave, direct, and vibrant. Listeners will embrace the unforgettable life of this very open star, and relate to the issues--like ageism in Hollywood, sex in the senior years, and her daughter-in-law's imperfect meat sauce--that Doris cares about passionately.
